    Brand spanking new for this winter, the Voile V6 Ski is a smaller, lighter, and nimble of version of Voile's acclaimed V8, with the same construction, shape, and design, but a narrower waist that makes it more of an everyday ski than a pure pow charger. It's lighter than the V8, which makes it a great choice for longer tours, and its narrower shape gives it better edge grip when you run into variable snow or hit the resort for a day of crushing groomers. It can still handle plenty of powder, though, thanks to the wide tip and tapered tail that let you float, smear, and pivot through the deep. The light and lively aspen core is laminated with fiberglass and carbon to serve up plenty of stiffness without extra weight, and the tail is slightly raised to give you a little playfulness without giving up the ski's solid edge hold and tight sidecut radius. Truly a backcountry quiver of one, the V6 is down to be your companion on every winter expedition.

    It may not have a big and burly V8 engine, but the V6 is the most versatile ski I've ever ridden. This photo is on a day that my buddy was riding a V8, and both of us had an amazing time floating chest-deep powder. I've also taken the ski on variable and firm conditions, down couloirs, and shooting chutes without a problem. This ski has a tight turn radius that really lets you carve down hardpack easily. That's because this ski's skinnier waist and cambered underfoot allow plenty of versatility for any condition, while the rockered tip and tail play in powder like the fattest.

    My one concern was the capped construction. I've never ridden anything capped before, and I'm scared to death of damaging the sidewalls, but the V6 has stayed strong over rocks and branches. I think that might be due to the carbon laminate that keeps the ski surprisingly stiff for a superlight backcountry ski. Another reason is possibly because Voile just makes damn good skis.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I am 5'11" and weigh 180lbs and bought the 183cm size. I ski relatively aggressively and was looking for a touring specific ski. I wanted a quiver killer for the backcountry, that being a one ski to do it all: everything from powder days to spring skiing. I was looking for a lightweight, midfat (100mm-110mm) underfoot, and reasonably priced touring ski. I mounted these at the Voile recommended mount with G3 Ion 12's.

    Pros:
    -These ski really well. They aren't overly stiff, but don't feel like a noodle either. Something I'd note though is for someone who is looking for a stiffer ski or is a bit heavier than I am, these may feel a bit soft. Have yet to have skied anything deeper than 6", but they've ripped it up so far.

    -These are pretty lightweight. There are lighter skis out there, but for the price, durability, and performance, its pretty hard to beat.

    -They are made in the USA, which is not something that a whole lot of brands can say these days. (They're made in SLC, Utah, actually right down the street from where this review is being written.)

    Cons:
    -As with many rockered skis, these do ski a bit short. I don't mind due to liking a shorter touring ski, but something to make note of.

    -I already had a bit of the topsheet scraped off. Probably because of the new, sharp edges and doesn't affect anything other than cosmetically, but slightly annoying to see.

    Overall:
    These are a really solid, lightweight all mountain ski. They've skied well on everything so far from hardpack to a bit of powder, but as with all of my items, I'll check back in if there's more to note or anything changes!

    5 stars for V-6

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I don't believe in a quiver of one. There are too many different conditions and objectives that require multiple skis for maximum enjoyment. BUT, If I could only have one ski it would be the V-6. This really is the sweet spot for one ski that can do it all really well. The rocker makes it really forgiving in a variety of variable BC conditions.

    Slash & burn

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used for skiing in area & backcountry in the Wasatch. Got the 188cm, I'm 6'3", 220lbs. Intuitive, light, quick, slash & burn. Excellent in soft snow, trees, moguls & other tight places. Can pivot & turn on a dime or rail them out in long turns. They don't let me down on hard snow & are very fun. Have yet to get them in bottomless snow but with the big fat tip & wasatch heritage I expect happiness. Size up, with the tip & tail rocker they ski short. Mounted with Dynafits: One rig to rule them all. I am very happy.

    Unanswered Question

    Have had these about a year, and love them but for one thing...the bases are incredibly slow. I am forever coming to halt, poling and skating when everyone else is speeding ahead. Seems to happen in all snow conditions, from spring to very cold powder. Frustrating. Has anyone else experienced this? Any thoughts on a fix? Have tried various waxes, with limited results.

    what bindings would you mount this with? I want to use pin bindings but dont want to break the bank. I would be using this as a 90% backcountry touring ski with only a few in resort turns.

    Best Answer

    Hey Charlie,

    If you want to use a Tech binding with these Voile V6 Skis, your best options would be one of the Dynafit Radical Series, G3 Ions or the Marker Kingpins. Or are you talking about a 3-pin telemark binding? Feel free to contact me directly to discuss your options.

    sizing? 6'3"+. 175lbs. for a dedicated BC ski. would the 183 be a good size all-a-rounder. or should I consider the 188's. the weight difference is my main reasoning. and not going any longer than necessary. thanks

    Hey JB,

    I would recommend you go with the 188 cm in these skis. The Voile V6 have a significant rockered tip and will ski a little shorter than their true length. Plus the extra surface area will give you better float. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
